Dreaded Tattoo!!

Well my Son finally did what he has been wanting to do since he was 17. He got a Tattoo, despite my many attempts to talk him out of it. When he first came to me with the idea, I told him "NO WAY" and he said well one of these days I will get one and I said well certainly not till you are 21 and no longer my responsibility. I thought maybe if I made him wait, it would give me more time to change his mind or for him to see how ugly they are. Well none of that worked. He turned 21 in August and immediately started saving his money. Yesterday, Sunday of all days, he went and got it done. What was I to say at this point. So here are pictures of his new body art. You will have no idea what this is. It is graffiti that he drew himself that spells out Token Ring. When you look at it one way, it says Token and then when you read it backwards it says Ring. Even after much explanation, I am still having trouble seeing it. I can make out the Ring part, but the Token part is hard to see. I have never been good at reading graffiti though. Token Ring is the name of his Counter Strike team (video game) that he has played now for 5 years. He plays in tournaments with his friends online and different places. They have played together for many years and he says the reason he wanted this tattoo was to always remember the best part of his teenage years. Who can argue with that. I just wish he would have just let me scrapbook the memories instead of tattooing them on his body!!!

All I got to say is OUCH!!! He said it was very painful, but worth it!! LOL!!! Kids, Gotta love'um even when they do the dumb things.
